日本鍛冶宗匠伊賀守藤原金道
Nippon Kaji Sosho Iga-no-Kami Fujiwara Kinmichi
(菊紋)**七年正月日
(Kiku mon) **7th Year, a Day in the New year

The link below displays the same handwriting and identifies him as the 6th generation Kinmichi (not Kanemichi as I read it).

This damn iPhone is hell to work with. I’ll post corrections after I get home on a REAL computer.

Yours next to the 6th generation Kinmichi. Similar writing style, but the 6th gen uses a specific nickname:
雷除
Raiyo

Here's hoping the experts chime in.

Not sure if you're trying to sell them or just getting infor for collecting, but not much of a market out there for short, out of polish, un-papered swords.

Wow!, that’s three nice looking Wakiashis . Wish I came across even just one of them myself. I really took a liking to them after watching “The Twilight Samurai” starring Hiroyuki Sanada. It’s one of my favorite samurai movie and Japanese actor of modern times.
